Valiant Celebrates Comic Selling An Average Of 20,000 Copies Per Issue

In an act of auto-fellatio, Valiant Comics is celebrating having sold an average of about 20,000 copies of X-O Manowar per issue over the last four years, by having the millionth overall copy of X-O Manowar slabbed and graded by CGC and put into Geppi's Entertainment Museum. What a milestone indeed. 

Other recent milestones for Valiant include suspiciously dominating the 2016 Harvey Awards and Reddit Awards vote rigging.

While other comic book companies can sell a million copies of a single issue, Valiant is content with 1% marketshare and trying to suck their own dicks over a milestone that given enough time, even Zenescope can hit.

But I guess you need a gimmick when your 48th issue sells under 8,000 copies.
